About Angie

A ngie, the founder of Belle Behind the Ball Wedding and Event Planning, started this business for her pure love of event planning and coordination. Her perky personality and pure enthusiasm for planning events make her a joy to work with. Her attention to detail, concise and thorough planning, and ability to direct never go unnoticed. Angie’s dedication to personalize each event with her creative touch to fit the guest of honor(s) will keep your guests talking about the event for years to come! Angie’s family and friends have been encouraging her for years to follow her dreams and this business has truly been built from love for what she does. If you ask her, she will tell you how absolutely blessed she is!

Angie is originally from New Jersey, but moved to Indiana after meeting her husband on vacation!  She married Keith, a bean counter and hippie at heart, and she has a stepson, Ethan, whom she adores. Angie loves a good glass of wine, a hot cup of coffee, live music, and spending time with dear friends. As part of the South Bend Foodie scene, Angie and Keith love to go out to eat and to try new places. Because of that, they also like to work out together- at Body Pump. She is a strong supporter of supporting local and a very proud American!

Kathryn | Event Coordinator

Kathryn’s unique talents make her the perfect addition to our Wedding team. She is Angie’s right hand when we are setting up for events and often is Lead Coordinator for Day-of Weddings. Kathryn is married to Matt, a firefighter, and has two adorable children!

Anita | Administrative Assistant

Anita has the patience of a saint! She is the one coordinating all of the behind-the-scenes details.  She helps the office run smoothly, which allows Angie to indulge her creative talents! Anita has two adult children and a grandbaby on the way!

Rebecca | Event Assistant

Rebecca is an incredibly sweet soul who helps coordinate events. She often does set-up and tear-down at our Weddings, so she works all of the odd hours! (We love her for that). Rebecca is starting in her 1st year at Saint Mary’s College and we believe her future is very bright!

About Our Location

Wondering where all the magic happens? 

We have two offices, Angie works mostly from a home office.  After many years in a traditional office, Angie realized her Couples had non-traditional hours (they planned after their work days), Angie decided that home office was most convenient so she could have access to files in the “off hours” when her couples would often reach out to her. 

However, a Professional Meeting Space was needed!  So Angie rents from “HeadQuarters” in Ignition Park. It is an innovative shared workspace. It offers unique options for meetings with clients and vendors or that first-impression consultation.  At this space, we have the choice of a very professional board room, a casual seating area – perfect for getting to know you – or even an indoor swing set (because why not!?)

460 Stull St. South Bend, IN 46601

Angie – thank you a million for ALL your help and support. The wedding couldn’t have gone so smoothly without you.  You are amazing and so professional.  I will be recommending you to my couples at the Basilica. Bless you.

Jane, Coordinator at Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Mother of the Bride.
Daughter’s Wedding 9/27/14

There are not enough adjectives to describe the awesomeness of Angie Anderson. She might be the 9th Wonder of the World.

Angie, what in the world would we have done without you? You did an amazing job in all areas. Sweeter than sweet and always available. You made our day perfect and we will think of you always. You’re a wonderful young woman who truly is the “Belle Behind the Ball”. We love and appreciate you!

Van Gurley, Father of the Bride
Daughter’s Wedding 8/1/15

My advice to newly engaged couples is “Hire a Wedding Planner. Angie Anderson… She’s amazing!”

Callie Julian, Bride
Wedding 8/27/16

Thank you so much, Angie. I could not imagine these last few months without you and your ability to take control and calm my nerves. You truly are the Belle behind the Ball!

Megan Lester, Bride
Wedding 10/29/16

I could write a novel on how much we appreciated Angie!  She was probably singularly the best decision we made throughout the entire wedding process. It is hard for me to put into words the gift she gave to all of us… Heather, my daughter, summed it up best. She said she needed her mom through this process, not someone coordinating everything. Angie gave us that.On a scale of 1 to 10, we give her infinity!
